Since about Christmas, Ariana has been complaining that she's tired throughout the day. An hour after she gets up, she says she's tired and wants to lay on the couch. She gets about 11 hours of sleep at night, but she wakes quite often. She's typically up for the bathroom at least twice. She's never been a good sleeper, but things did improve when she had her tonsils & adenoid out in 2006. She's got circles under her eyes and just doesn't seem to want to eat a lot.
I'm going to start keeping a log of her sleep & waking times, how she is during the day, etc to take in to the pedi if this continues. Jason thinks we can wait until her 5yo checkup in May, but I'm thinking she may need to be in sooner. Someone this weekend suggested she's still having issues with sleep apnea, or maybe an endocrine problem. Which prompted me to think of keeping the log.
She's also started this "I'm scared" deal at night too, which results in a longer awake time for all of us naturally. We've taken steps to help with that at bedtime, but it seems to be starting at night again more.
Any ideas? Tips?
